Other information:

Arsenic is a toxic metalloid widely distributed in the environment. While it is acutely toxic in certain occupational exposures, the primary concerns for public health are from chronic, low-dose, cumulative exposures, principally via ingestion of inorganic arsenic in food and water. The review identified that all species screened (with the exception of Saucer scallops) complied with the current maximum limits for inorganic arsenic set in the FSC.
